My father-in-law has his 1st Wedding Anniversary coming up and him and his wife love the beach so I thought I would create them a Beach Anniversary Card.
I started off by watercoloring a beach scene on Arches cold press paper. I die cut the large stitched heart from Simon Says Stamp out of Innocent Pink cardstock from Gina K Designs. I ran it through my Big Shot with an embossing folder over the from of the cardstock to create a stitched heart impression. I placed the next size down heart in the middle of that heart and ran it through to cut a heart for the window. I adhered the acetate to the front of the large pink heart and attached it to the back of the top folding card to create a window.
I stamped the chairs (Gina K Designs stamp) on watercolor paper with Marvy Markers (sepia, terra cotta) and pulled the color out of the lines. In order to attach them to the front of the card I fussy cut them out (twice – one for the back of the chairs to hide the adhesive).
I attached the beach watercolor scene to the Gina K Designs Blue Denim cardstock (cut to 4 x 5.25). I placed the card in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment from Gina K Designs on the inside of the card so it can be seen through the window when the card is closed.
